The annual host of one of England’s largest music festivals – Reading Festival – the town boasts a long, influential history dating back as far as the 8th Century and many Grade I (6), Grade II* (22) and Grade II (853) listed buildings.

The town’s diversity of architectural styles – ranging from medieval times through to the 21st Century – and numerous fountains, sculptures, murals and other public works of art include landmarks like, for example:

Reading is home to a number of excellent educational institutions, including the University of Reading, Reading College and the Gateway Languages, English Language Centre, ELC London Street and Eurospeak language schools. The town’s higher education students are also catered for by the local presence (principally in nursing) maintained by the University of West London.

A commercial centre of importance within Southern England and the Thames Valley and a major retail centre, Reading has a significant historical involvement within the IT industry and is home to numerous British and global businesses & organisations, as well as thousands of start-ups and SMEs spanning a diversity of industries including:

  • IT, software and technology
  • Retail, health and education
  • Business/financial services, insurance and more

Ranked the top economic area in the UK for well-being and economic success (taking factors like skills, employment, income and health into account), Reading consistently attracts thousands of British and international professionals and students and subsequently has a high demand for HMO properties.

Under current local and national HMO licensing legislation, these properties must invariably be licensed.

Reading HMO Licence Applications

Local landlords must submit Reading HMO licence applications if their properties are flats or houses occupied by 3 tenants or more who:

  • Form multiple households (2 or more) and
  • Share basic amenities (i.e. bathrooms/toilets and/or kitchens)

Buildings that were converted into self-contained apartments/flats may also be considered HMOs if certain building regulations are not met and more than 1/3 of these self-contained units are rented out.

While the local council does provide a comprehensive guide to licensing HMO properties in Reading, the licensing process is complex and can be somewhat confusing, time-consuming and stressful.
